By: Babak A. Tafreshi


Region: Europe

Site: La Palma - Spain

Date: 2011 August 30

Time-lapse video: In a clear August evening the young crescent moon sets over the William Herschel Telescope on the top of La Palma, Canary Islands. Note the deforming shape of the moon due to increasing effect of atmospheric refraction as it approaches the horizon. See a selected still image of this view. Babak Tafreshi/
